Wednesday

First of all, I'd like to say: farewell CommentBoxes! Safe home!
As I sit at my computer thinking of the CommentBoxes and how lovely they are, I am, again, in awe of internet friendships.
I was lucky enough to have coffee with Eleanor yesterday, just before she whisked her husband off on another adventure, and I had a hard time saying goodbye to her.
If you have the chance to meet a blog friend I would suggest you take it.

On other fronts:

I TOLD my mother to have that cold checked and NOW look what's happened. She's in the hospital with pneumonia, that's what. I did my best to get her settled in there last night and we hope for a swift recovery.

I've started an in-house blog at my office. (Like how I say "my" office?) Twelve people showed up for pizza and a blog convo today and I'm pretty excited. (Sorry, in-house only!)

I have a new, gigantic, shiny iMac at work. I was happy enough with my little white iMac but it was leased and had to go back. The new one is 22 inches wide and I can check my makeup in it!

I know I've said it before, but I'm still feeling like I'm hitting my stride at work. This thrills me. I am able to anticipate things now...I can not EXPLAIN! Suffice to say I continue to evolve in the working world.

Let's see...what else?
I'm BACK ON THE SWEETARTS! Cyclical? Maybe! Someone keep track!

Did you know I bought K a new flannel Yukata for Christmas? I did. He loves it and I am so happy to have provided him with this small measure of comfort.

Farewell CommentBoxes. I hate to be egotistical about your visit but you've done me proud. It was an honor to spend the evening with the four of you.

Farewell Blackbirds, until we meet again. Our New York experience was the richer for having met you xxxx

Isn't she lovely? Eleanor drove me to our blogmeet dinner when I was up in Sydney last year. We had such a good time.

I'm quite jealous of your face time with bloggers...

And shall I send you some sweetarts to feed your habit?

Swear to God, I'll show up there one day.

Oh wait. That sounded a little scary

What I mean is, it would be fun to meet you one day.

Hope your mom gets better soon.

I hope your mom is better soon!
And I am thrilled to read that work is going so well. I have a few years up my sleeve before I go back to who-knows-what-kind-of work and I am more than a little nervous about it. Knowing that others have done it successfully makes me feel a lot better about it!

Wishing your dear mom the speediest of recoveries!

And delighted to hear things are going so well with work.

I happened to catch Dr. Oz attempt to teach an audience member how to use an epipen today. I understand now why practice is required.

Didn't your mom know that daughters are ALWAYS right? Wishing her time to recover and get back her strength.

I love to think of you spreading the blog goodness into every corner fo your world!
